NSW - Economic Update Breakfast

With the recent national and global uncertainty and plunging economic indicators,
it is visible that credit risks are escalating across the economy.

With media speculating the US, New Zealand and even Australia are headed towards a recession and the ongoing trade wars starting to bite, it’s never been more important to be on top of current economic conditions.
As a credit professional, understanding recent and emerging trends and the shifting political landscape has never been more vital to how you manage credit exposures. To help navigate these challenging times Mark Thirlwell, Chief Economist at the Australian Institute of Company Directors will update you on what the evolving trends mean for credit management.
